Carolee Schneemann: Mysteries of the Iconographies

Fri, Nov 18, 2011 at 7pm

This event has passed.
As part of the symposium Carolee Schneemann will present Mysteries of the Iconographies. In this performance lecture—a format the artist has pioneered and employed throughout her career—Schneemann, as she describes it, “travels backwards and forwards in time”. During the performance lecture the artist will analyze recurring formal properties of her work, beginning with obsessive childhood drawings of a staircase. She will also explore the mysteries of a notched stick, paper folds, indentations, the slice of line in space, and her recent photographic grids and objects. This Lecture will be presented in conjunction with the Henry’s two-day symposium Streaming in from the Moon which will explore the complex and controversial themes of feminism, performance, and the body through a series of performances, lectures, public forums, film screenings, and other opportunities for public discourse. www.henryart.org/events/show/478
